The Sacramento Kings are the better team here and have been covering machines on the road, but they're also inconsistent as all hell and a team you're never really confident to lay chalk with. The Oklahoma City Thunder have quietly won three straight games, and they're a young team that's gaining confidence. The Thunder are also getting better defensively. I'll take a shot with OKC and the points.
Randy’s Pick Oklahoma City Thunder +4.5
